The Nigeria Internet Group (NIG) was founded in 1995 as a not-for-profit, non-governmental organization to promote the Internet in Nigeria. The vision of the NIG is to leapfrog Nigeria into a pervasive Internet- employing nation in order to harness its power as a vehicle for development.
The president further presented the Annual Report of the group to members and promised further support and commitment to the Nigeria Internet Group (NIG).
The Annual General Meeting of the group birthed new executives and composition of new NIG Board of Trustees that will lead NIG for the next two years and also continue to chart the successful course for the group.
